You are not gonna believe this.
I almost did not believe it and it was happening to me! WEEEEE! So excited still and it happened hours ago. Okay. So let me calm down to tell ya all about it. Whew.

So I ordered some Opal sock yarn from Diva Knitting because I know she is from here, saw her awesome prices and could not resist. While I was there I was drooling over everything, especially her stitch markers. Such beautiful jewels! I went back and forth on whether to get them :devil: or not and finally decided to wait until I had more fundage. :( Sigh. So, a mere 3 days later my package arrives. YAY! I open up the package expecting to meet my Opal. And yep, there it is in all of its glory. :D



But then I see another small thing all wrapped up. What is that I ask myself? I rip it open and what do I see? What do I SEE?

Oh. My. Gosh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Beauty. Perfection. It was at that point that I started jumping up and down! My dh thinks I won the lotto or something...finds out its stitch markers and feigns excitement for me. BUT OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!

And then I think...did I order them and totally block it from my memory out of guilt? I check the invoice. No! THEY WERE FREE!!!!!!!!!!

FREE

More jumping up and down at this point.

Can you believe it? I mean....really...I never get free stuff. Neva Eva!!!!! And free jewels? Good Lord have mercy!

I just had to share. That just made my whole day! YAY!!!!!!!!

Beautiful! I would have been just about as excited, but I have to admit I started giggling while reading this. See, it really IS the little things that make us happy!

Awww shucks!

Don't go running there just yet though...my hosting company just sent me a message saying the *(#&%*_!! server is down! Disappointing since I just switched to them a week and a half ago. Darn technology.
